Cubeecraft is a website that has free templates for crafting popular characters out of paper. Although they are made from simple blocks, they contain enough detail to make them easily recognisable.
Nearly all of the templates consist of a head, body, legs and arms, made with individual blocks that are cut out, folded and stuck together.
Here are a few of our favourites from the Cubeecraft site:
- Martin Luther King Jr.
- Batman (The Dark Knight)
- Karl Pilkington
- Super Mario
- Finn and Jake from Adventure Time
For a figure that’s slightly more durable, Cubeecraft recommends using a sheet of card stock rather than plain printer paper.
They also have a free blank template (at the bottom of this page) for creating your own design.
